    No official news, but she’s on preorder at ShowZ. Which might not be indicative of anything, but I sincerely doubt she’s cancelled because a few people raged on Twitter or whatever it was.

    I said before that Fallen seems to be a remould of Tarn.

    For 400 bucks, they should not be remoulding. Makes me not want to support them,

    People raged on Twitter when MP-44 was first announced.

    Well what I was trying to say was Twitter will not change anything. People can rage all they want.

    Well, I hope it's not too drastic of a change or anything. Would be unfair to the people who like the initial design if it were.

    TBH they don't say anything about changes, just "we're dealing with some issues."

    Exactly. Why do people always put words into their mouths when this kind of thing happens?

    Playing devil's advocate, they say in direct reference to Windblade "they are dealing with some issues of it". That's a tad more specific than the more general "dealing with some issues".

    I'm not saying that means they're changing the design, but by the same token the statement doesn't take design change definitively off the table either.

    I'd like to think there's just minor issues of tolerances, engineering, or some such to resolve... but the timing in relation to all the furor regarding the design has the cynic in me thinking the worst.

    And those issues could very well be the missing wing bits pointed out earlier in the thread!

    Just for the record I think Windblade is fine. It’s a valid art style. Like it, don’t like it, honestly do whatever, just don’t be gross about it/an asshole.

    "We took down the post because we need to modify the tips of the wings."

    Does that make sense to anyone else?

    Well that's certainly encouraging. Hopefully if they reveal it, it won't lead to another big mess.

    Am I missing something? They say "here are the photos" but I don't see any photos. Glad they're appreciating all the positive feedback though.
